“MAC’, WELL-STARTED, 8 MONTH OLD SETTER MALE
“Mac” February 2016 male. Sired by Grand National Grouse Champion Full Blast ex a multiple Champion Shady Hills Billy female (littermate to Texas Honey Bee).
“Mac” is owned by Thor Kain. Anyone who knows Thor knows how seriously he works his dogs. “Mac” has also spent some time during his puppy development in the puppy program at Bob Watts’ kennel. “Mac”, in his early development, has demonstrated that he has a strong desire to hunt, applying himself to digging up birds and getting them pointed in a fashion that’s well beyond his young age. Thor has had him into numerous woodcock along with some grouse and wild pheasants. He has pointed all three species. “Mac” has been the recipient of an outstanding opportunity to find wild birds throughout the summer. He’s made the most of it. He looks great when pointing wild birds but on released quail his tail sometimes comes over his back more than we like for competition. “Mac” handles while running hard and going to cover. He responds well when he’s called. He’s ecollar-conditioned, comes to his name being called, loads easily, travels well and stands at attention and quietly on the tailgate to get ‘dressed” for hunting. Around the kennel, “Mac” is quiet. He is friendly with other dogs and currently has a younger kennelmate who he tolerates happily. He’s at Bob’s place right now and he has not barked at night at all. “Mac” has been in the house, but we’re not making claims of him being completely housebroke. He hasn’t made any mistakes in the house when he’s been in. Finally, “Mac” has a loving personality, typical setter personality. When he’s done a great job in the field, he’s ridden home on the front seat. $1200.
